Have a customer chewing through too much data across 3 homes sharing an RBI 4G connection. 




Does the standard (B315?) router have SNMP? Is it enabled by default (long drive for me to find out).




If no SNMP then I'll look at NTOPNG on an old Ubuntu laptop......

Just had a look on one and I can't see any sign of SNMP or a WAN accessible webUI. If you've got something on the LAN side then you could look at using the API to talk to it (or even screen-scrape), but the best you'll get is aggregated data, not per DHCP client. As an example this is the output of "api/monitoring/traffic-statistics":


CurrentConnectTime: 1755522
CurrentUpload: 65876711516
CurrentDownload: 149964050468
CurrentDownloadRate: 4083
CurrentUploadRate: 4571
TotalUpload: 511478845228
TotalDownload: 1474634154205
TotalConnectTime: 22852954


I'd pick if you want to do this well and manage traffic across different clients you're going to have chuck a 2nd router in behind it.

Thanks Gaddman, I wasn't aware of the API, i have a linux box on the network and might curl > grep that stuff to a text file so they can see times and dates of usage......




Otherwise, yes, PFSense or such on openwrt is probably the best option.




Thanks :-)
